We’ve had many OCer’s ask about bicycling to work, and how to best get started. Since it’s always more fun to ride as a group (along with greater safety in numbers), we’re going to begin a regular Thursday morning ride starting at Espumoso Cafe in the Bishop Arts District to Downtown. The owners at Espumoso have graciously offered to open 30 minutes early for us (7:30AM), and as you may already know, they offer free coffee with the purchase of a pastry to all bicyclists. We’ll look at leaving between 7:45AM and 8AM and heading in.
It’s a good way to meet your fellow cyclists, it’s cheaper than a gym membership, and will help you learn the ends and outs of urban bicycling.
